La Grande Roue de Paris is a giant transportable ferris wheel, originally installed in Paris (France) on the ‘Place de la Concorde’ for the Year 2000 millennium celebrations where it had two very succesful years and unfortunately had to leave due to a change in politic power in Paris. In 2003 it was re-erected in Birmingham, where it remained in service until the end of February 2004.

For Christmas 2004, the wheel was re-erected in Manchester. Then, in 2005, the wheel was bought by Leon Snep and after a short visit to the World Town Fair in Geleen, placed as a special promotion, the wheel was placed in Amsterdam for a very succesfull ten day run on the famous Museum square right in the heart of the city (in between the Rijksmuseum and the Concert Hall).

After this, the wheel went back to the UK for the Tall Ships Race in Gateshead (Newcastle) where it stayed until the end of September 2005. For the 2006 season, the wheel was placed in Bangkok (Thailand) as a tourist attraction on the well-known Suan Lum Night Bazaar.

Future locations where we are working on are: Barcelona | Milan | Monte Carlo | Cannes | Las Vegas | Chicago | Orlando | Sao Paolo | Miami | Liverpool |
Hong Kong | Macau | Amsterdam | Brussels | Singapore
